Freedom of Information and Data Protection

The Commission is committed to the provisions and principles of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and has produced its own Freedom of Information Policy and Publication Scheme (PDF document).

If you have any queries or wish to submit a request for information under the Act, please e-mail, or write to:

Information Officer, Boundary Commission for England, 35 Great Smith Street, London, SW1P 3BQ.

Personal data held by the Commission is subject to the provision of Data Protection law currently in force in England. We also have our own Data Protection and Privacy Policy (PDF document), which provides further details.

There is also specific law that restricts the use of electoral registers. In particular, the Commission is not allowed to supply a third party with a copy of a register it has received (or details of any individual within it), unless expressly provided for in the relevant legislation.

You may request a copy of any personal data we hold on you, at any time, by emailing, or by writing to the Information Officer at the above address.
